A small visitor from Mexico is boosting tourism near Douglas.
The bird is native to tropical Mexico.
Its feathers flash brilliant blue in sunlight but can appear dark gray when viewed from a different angle, or through the dense underbrush the bird prefers.
People have come from as far away as Massachusetts hoping for a glimpse.
This is only the fifth confirmed appearance of the Blue Mockingbird in the United States.
Ranch staff tell KOLD News 13 that visitors got a bonus over the weekend, with sightings of two rarely seen Ruddy Doves.
